Complexity in Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Technology Research
volume discusses the challenge of dealing with complexity in entrepreneurship,
innovation and technology research. Businesses as well as entire economies are
increasingly being confronted by widespread complex systems. Fields such as
entrepreneurship and innovation cannot ignore this reality, especially with
their inherent links to diverse research fields and interdisciplinary methods.
However, most methods that allow more detailed analyses of complex problems are
either neglected in mainstream research or are, at best, still emerging.
Against this backdrop, this book provides a forum for the discussion of
emergent and neglected methods in the context of complexity in
entrepreneurship, innovation and technology research, and also acts as an
inspiration for academics across related disciplines to engage more in
Methodological and Conceptual Discussion.
